Evening Boys,
I am learning about scopes and need info. I don't want this scope, but on the Hi-point products page it states "BSA RD30 Illuminated Red Dot Scope WILL NOT CO-WITNESS WITH THE IRON SIGHT ON THE 995 CARBINES"
What would stop it from CO-WITNESS WITH THE IRON SIGHT? Would it not have the left/right and the up/down adjustments?
What am I missing here??

It may be too high or too low for the red dot to cowitness with the front sight centered in the field of vision. I don't try and get my red dot to line up with the front sight post, I usually use a popup rear sight and when it's up, the sights will be useable in the lower 1/3 of the red dot scope even with it turned off, this is in case of failure of the red dot scope. I always have two sighting systems on any rifle that uses a red dot or a standard scope as the main system, either popup sights or 45 degree offset ones in addition.

Yep - if the sight is too low - you might be able to use a spacer to make it taller and line it up.

But, if it's too tall - It won't work.
